List of Wedding Themes
Your sweetie has asked you to marry him and now you are planning your wedding. A question pops into your mind – should I have a themed affair and if so what theme should I follow?
Well that all depends. What do you and your fiancée like, where do you live, what is the mindset of your guests, what is practical and how much of your budget do you want to spend on your celebration.
Some of these questions have obvious answers and others require a little thought, and ingenuity. Let's take it one step at a time and begin here.
If you and your honey enjoy going to sporting events consider basing your theme on a particular sport, such as, baseball. You could have your table number tags in the shape of a baseball or bat.
Your reception room could be decorated in baseball banners, and your centerpieces could resemble a baseball diamond with players on the bases and mound.
For fun your D.J. could play, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” and of course the topper of your cake could be a bride ready to hit a home run with her hubby as the pitcher.
Purchase popcorn bags and fill them with buttered popcorn and leave them on the table for your guests to take home.
Some couples enjoy reading about the medieval times and going to renaissance festivals. Medieval Themes have the excitement of being at a costume ball.
Imagine yourself getting married in a castle or old mansion decorated with heraldic banners hung from wooden dowels. For centerpieces, use large wrought iron candelabras with tall tapered candles. Your dress could have a laced up back and a tight waistline. A fabulous idea for a favor would be to have someone sew velvet pouches and fill them with chocolate foil gold coins.
How about hiring a trumpeter to play as you and your husband walk into your reception hall.
